"Sterling elk hill Ooty- enjoyed"

6.4/7
Posted 3 days ago

Was a good stay. Food was very mediocre. Rotis were hard. Food was expensive too. The service was also very late. Room was excellent. Amenities were very good. People were very cordial. Front office service was very nice. Should not venture out for sightseeing. Better to enjoy the resort and their amenities. The township was very crowded with no parking space and where. Other features were really good. Stay, house keeping, front office was really nice. Looking forward to holiday next year.

"Good stay at the hotel"

7.0/7
Posted 17 days ago

It was my trip to Ooty in the month of January 2017 where I stayed in the Sterling Holidays Elk Hill%2C Ooty. It was my holiday trip with family. I would rate the destination as good. I would rate the location as good because it is at main center. The appearance of the hotel was very good as it is very hygienic. The staff at the reception was good as they are polite and responsive. I booked this room directly at hotel. I would rate the services in the hotel were very good with immediate response. The rooms at the hotel were good because of facilities and decoration. I would rate food as good because of taste and price is not high.

"Good hotel for family"

5.1/7
Posted 2 months ago

I went there in month of February with my family for holiday and relaxation. The city was cool and calm. The best place was Dwarka lake. The location of the hotel was far from all destination. The hotel ambient was good. Reception service was good. Rooms and services was good and on time. The food was tasty. Only pickup drop service should be given as the hotel was far away other than good hotel

"Old but still retains it's CHARM!"

5.5/7
Posted 2 months ago

Ooty is a beautiful and makes a great weekend away from home (Bangalore). We usually stay at the Elk Hill, Sterling property and think it's a good stay. Where is it located? While this has to be one of the oldest properties in Ooty, what helps is that it still carries a certain charm to it. I personally LOVE the location. It is a bit away from the main street but I like the exclusivity it offers and of course the VIEW is pretty magical. What are the rooms like? The rooms in this property are pretty good. They are spacious, nicely ventilated, great lighting and clean (this one is very important). Is the food any good? Well, yes it most certainly is. I must admit there wasn't a wide range but we pretty much enjoyed most meals so yeah it was definitely alright. What do you have to do around here? They have an activity area to keep you busy, a bon fire most evenings and if you are like me then the awesome view is plenty to keep you engaged. I am happy to admit that this property is no longer as fancy as some of the newer ones mushroomed out in Ooty BUT I still like it. It somehow seems familiar, feels high on comfort and also does give us a view that's to die for (yes, the view again). Definitely worth it but it's important to book with them knowing what you are getting; if 5 star experience is what you're after, this may not necessarily work for you then (but then I could be wrong).

"Excellent hotel for a family"

6.0/7
Posted 5 months ago

We visited Ooty in the latter half of December, and stayed at the Sterling Elk Hill Resort. Travelling with my wife, my kid and my parents, we were looking for 3 things from the hotel - proximity to tourist spots in Ooty, Play area for the kid and clean, comfortable rooms. One word of caution for first time visitors - if you are using Google Maps to navigate your way, specify your destination as Ramakrishna Matha. The hotel is just a little ahead of Ramakrishna Matha. The signboards showing directions to the hotel are not placed very well, and like us, you might end up taking the longer route, where the road isn't that good. To begin with, the location of this hotel is very convenient. Most of the major tourist spots are nearby from this hotel. The railway station is just about 8-10 mins drive. The Ooty lake and botanical gardens are within a 3-4 km radius. When we reached the hotel, we were impressed with the amount of parking space available. The front desk gave us the good news that our rooms had been upgraded and they were giving us interconnecting rooms. While we expected 2 adjacent rooms with an interconnecting door, we were pleasantly surprised that their interconnecting rooms' were actually 2 bedrooms on either side of a living room. This was a really good arrangement since we could sit in the living room and spend time together, while the kid also got a larger area to explore and run around. The view from the rooms and the balcony overlooked the hills, and was really beautiful. The living room had a sofa, some chairs, a balcony and also a kitchen counter with a kettle and tea/coffee sachets, complete with a microwave oven. The bedrooms were smaller than most hotel rooms, but that was fine because of the living room. One of the rooms in an interconnected pair has a smaller bathroom. The rooms were very clean and comfortable otherwise. The service was prompt and efficient. The spread at the breakfast and dinner buffets was quite good, and so was the food. Because it was the Christmas season, the hotel had set up a huge Christmas tree in the lobby. This was a big attraction for our kid. We also had the opportunity to use the children's play area. The play area is very well equipped with cars, games and toys for kids. Our kid had a great time in the play area, and we spent more than an hour there. They also have a lawn at ground level where you can have a morning cup of tea. The view from the lawn is very scenic, and just watching the hills gives you a feeling of calm. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much, and we would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Ooty.

"Rejuvenating at Ooty "

6.3/7
Posted 1 year ago

This was my first visit to Ooty, so was not knowing much about the hotels and places over there. We had booked room in Sterling hotel. We checked in at 4 pm. Front office were very friendly and fast. They spoke to us politely. They gave us room key, one of staff member moved our luggage to our rooms. He briefed us about things at room. Room was spacious, had very good balcony, had TV, had heater, had a clean shower room and toilets. Furniture in the room were also good. We all got refreshed and headed towards dining area for early dinner as we were hungry very early. It's a buffet system. Dinner was good we had lot of options. I had Biryani and chicken curry which was tasty. And then we walked around for a while. Crowd was not much, very few people. We went to dance floor, had nice fun over there. Then we came back to our rooms had a nice sleep. There was no disturbance of any kind of sound. We used the heater and it was awesome. We slept well. Early Morning we had a walk. There are a lot of activities happening over there every day to day. We played badminton for a while. We had tea and coffee and then followed up with complimentary breakfast. It was buffet but also had a live counter. We had nice dosas. We roamed around the city. Relaxed well and in the evening we came back, got freshen up and checked out. Overall, the stay at the hotel was for less duration but felt nice ambiance.

"Super cool holiday"

5.9/7
Posted 12 months ago

As I got 4 days holiday last weekend, it was planned to go Ooty with family. Reservation was made by contacting Sterling holidays customer care. I requested for 2 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately it was not available. Hence reserved two nos single room apartments for us. Us were five, viz, me, my wife, father, mother and our lovely 7 month daughter. We reached Ooty by evening four o clock on Thursday. We contacted hotel front office to get directions. The response was good and routes were explained to us. On the way we could do find direction boards at all major spots. It was top of a hill. We received warm welcome on arrival. There was staff to carry our luggage. Front office staff helped us by providing 2 bedroom apartment as it was available. The apartment was very nice. Entry was to a hall with open kitchen. Oven, mini fridge and kettles were there. The hall had a big sofa and a wall mount LEd tv with dth connection. All language channels were available. Two bedrooms were on either sides of the hall. These rooms were beautiful with comfortable bedding blankets pillows etc. It had large windows to view scenic Ooty. It also had separate tv, room heater and fridge. Bathrooms were very spacious and modern, but without a Bath tub. Overall the rooms and stay were very comfortable.

"24 hours hot water facility, well maintained rooms"

7.0/7
Posted 3 years ago

Excellent location, there was no difficult to find out and hotel appearance, exterior and interior were very beautiful. Room was spacious with eye-catching interior and furniture was too good, neat and well maintained with good working basic amenities and there was a mountain view from the room and 24 hours hot water facility. Staff were good, polite, professional, very caring and very good service. No problem while check-in and check-out and there were activities like kids' room and play room for children. I had food with buffet, which was I stayed and the food was very good. There was sufficient parking space facility. I stayed here for 3 days with family for relaxation. It's worth to pay for this hotel room cost; it is recommendable to other travellers.
